Tea Party Favors

I've been very busy in my stamp studio the last few days.  I volunteered to make some favors for a tea at my church.  A fellow demo and Stampin' Pretty Pal, Patti MacLeith, shared the instructions with me to make these adorable tea bag holders. 

They were designed to hold a tea bag and a chocolate square.  However, we're going to put a mint in one pocket and a Scripture verse in the other.

I used a retired stamp set (Tea Party) but the other products are current.  Don't you just love the Pool Party Glimmer Ribbon and Birthday Bouquet DSP?

Here are the supplies and measurements if you'd like to make one of your own.

  • Thick White Card Stock  7-3/4 x 3-1/2, scored at 3-1/2 and 4-1/4
  • 20" of Pool Party Glimmer Ribbon attached to front and spine
  • Blushing Bride Card Stock  3-1/4 x 3-1/4, embossed with Lovely Lace TIEF
  • Tea Lace Paper Doily
  • Subtles DSP Stack in Pool Party  1-1/2 x 3-1/4
  • Tea Party stamped in Blushing Bride on Whisper White Cardstock, cut out with Ovals Framelit, attached with a dimensional
  • Birthday Bouquet DSP (for inside pockets)  6 x 6, folded in half and glued along edge, scored at 2-3/4 and 3-1/4, notched with 2" circle punch

All 72 of these are boxed and waiting for someone to pick them up and fill with the mints and verses for Sunday.  Thank you, Patti, for sharing your instructions so I could add a little something special for some dear ladies at our church.

  1. Tea Party Favors!! Sounds amazing. I recently attended a book expo and tea-snack party and it was just so adorable. The tea cups used over there were specially imported from Mexico and were so pretty. At one of the local Los Angeles venues I will throw a baby shower for my sister so would love to purchase such pretty tea set. Hoping to find a good Mexican pottery shop online.
